Shubman Gill is touted to be the next big thing in Indian cricket. Gill has played a fair bit under Rahul Dravid be it India’s U-19 team or India A side. Now, the 19 years old has revealed the best advice that the former Indian batsman gave to him. It’s something that Gill swears by and never intends to forget no matter what level he reaches in his career.

“Rahul sir has been my coach since the India U-19 days and then India A. There is one basic advice from him which I always keep in mind. He would tell me that come what may, never change your basic game that got you success,” said Gill.

A while back, Shubman Gill had become the youngest Indian batsman to score double-ton when he made a brilliant double hundred against West Indies A. “I would certainly rate my double hundred against the West Indies A as one of my best knocks in red ball (cricket) considering the opposition, surface and match situation,” Gill said.

“Rahul sir told me that if I change my game, it won’t be natural anymore and may not provide success. His focus has always been on the mental make-up while we face the challenge posed by the best,” the Punjab batsman added.
